Scabal's New Head of Design is Campbell Dunn
It is with great pride that Scabal can announce the appointment of Campbell Dunn as the company’s new Head of Design. With an established pedigree in creating classically luxurious menswear, Campbell aims to take the company to the next creative level.
Born in Scotland, Campbell spent 10 years of his childhood in Edinburgh, before moving to Harrogate in West Yorkshire, an idyllic town just 50 miles from Scabal’s 500-year-old mill.
Taking a place to study Fashion Design at the University of Huddersfield, Campbell not only graduated with a First-Class Honours degree, but also secured the Graduate of the Year Award at 2011’s prestigious Scottish Fashion Awards. Propelled by this success, Campbell was appointed Assistant Designer at the iconic British retailer Marks & Spencer. While working across the full spectrum of menswear offered at retail, Campbell began to specialise in tailoring and trimming.
After one year at M&S, Campbell moved to Savile Row institution Gieves and Hawkes, beginning a three-year ascent to Menswear Designer. The strength of Campbell’s direction in casual wear, outerwear, shirts and denim, as well as his dealings with the company’s fabric mills, helped to reestablish the house as one of the leading tailors on The Row and worldwide. In moving to Scabal, Campbell joins a company in transformation, with rapid modernisation across design and manufacturing occurring in the last two years. In his own words, Campbell explains his ambitions for the company:
“Scabal holds a special place within the world of tailoring. Our fabrics enjoy an unparalleled reputation across the globe, while our made-to-measure garments are highly regarded in continental Europe. It is my goal to raise Scabal’s ready-to-wear and made-to-measure offering to the same level as our other lines. By using the core strengths of the company, such as the heritage mill, fully European garment production and wide array of quality cloths, I believe that Scabal can take its rightful place at the top of the tailoring industry. This does not mean radically changing our offering, as Scabal’s global consumer base demand classically stylish pieces that will be wearable for decades to come. This is why we will aim to introduce fine tailoring to a younger audience through gradual stylistic evolution, with one eye firmly on Scabal’s substantial and distinguished heritage.”
